1. RESERVATION FEE
The payment of a reservation fee (“Reservation Fee“) allows you to reserve a specific Volkswagen-branded vehicle that is featured on this Website (a “Vehicle“) by Dealer.
We reserve the right to refuse access to the Services to anyone, at any time, for any reason.
When placing a Reservation Fee on a Vehicle:
- you must use a valid credit card (i) that has been issued to you personally, (ii) that we accept, and (iii) that we are authorized to process a charge in the amount of the Reservation Fee;
- you represent and warrant that: (i) the payment information that you provide to us is both valid and correct; and (ii) you are the person named in the credit card provided; and
- you consent to be billed for the Reservation Fee in compliance with: (i) applicable legal requirements; and (ii) the requirements disclosed to you by your credit card issuer.
Under no circumstances will Dealer be responsible: (i) for any charges that your credit card issuer may apply to you as a result of our processing your Reservation Fee; (ii) if your credit card issuer refuses or fails to authorize payment by you; or (iii) for any delays in the purchase or non-availability of the Vehicle that you endeavored to reserve arising from any validation checks that may be carried out regarding your payment or identification.
Once processed (by our third-party service providers), your Reservation Fee will be paid directly to Dealer and shall be applied to the potential purchase price of your reserved Vehicle. Please note, however, that any sale, lease or finance of your reserved Vehicle shall be subject to your acceptance of the terms and conditions of your selected Dealer’s vehicle sales contract, lease contract, and/or finance contract, as applicable. Further note that Volkswagen Group Canada Inc. (“VGCA“) does not collect your Reservation Fee and is neither responsible nor liable for same. VGCA cannot refund any Reservation Fee that you pay under these Terms and Conditions.
Please note that you may not sell, give-away, or otherwise transfer your Reservation Fee to another person, entity or organization.
2. SERVICE LIMITATIONS
Please note each of the following important limitations with respect to the Services (including the Reservation Fees):
- (a) the ability to make a Reservation Fee is only available to legal Canadian residents of legal driving age with a valid license;
- (b) VGCA does not sell cars directly to the public. Accordingly, VGCA is not selling you any Vehicle. The sale of a Vehicle (if any) is strictly between you and Dealer;
- (c) as Dealer is responsible for all Vehicle sales and leasing, we may assist you in securing financing for a Vehicle;
- (d) the payment of a Reservation Fee does not constitute: (i) an agreement for the purchase of a Vehicle; (ii) a down-payment in connection with the purchase of a Vehicle; or (iii) a guarantee of a Vehicle or delivery of a Vehicle within a specific time period. For the avoidance of doubt, the placement of a Reservation Fee on a Vehicle does not guarantee the sale of that Vehicle (or any other Vehicle) to you; and
- (e) the time period between payment of a Reservation Fee and Vehicle delivery, or cancellation, may extend weeks or months. During this time, the Reservation Fee will not accrue any interest or likewise be negatively affected in any way: the value of your Reservation Fee remains unchanged from the amount paid by you.
NEITHER DEALER NOR VGCA REPRESENT, WARRANT OR GUARANTEE THAT THE VEHICLE YOU SELECTED WILL BE AVAILABLE FOR PURCHASE OR LEASE BY YOU. THERE MAY BE CIRCUMSTANCES IN WHICH YOUR RESERVATION FEE IS CANCELLED BY DEALER (AS DESCRIBED IN THE NEXT SECTIONS OF THESE TERMS AND CONDITIONS) — IN WHICH CASE YOUR SOLE REMEDY WILL BE A REFUND OF THE AMOUNT THAT YOU PAID FOR YOUR RESERVATION FEE.
3. CANCELATIONS AND REFUNDS
Your Reservation Fee is fully refundable. Refunds of the Reservation Fee will be processed by Dealer and returned to the same credit card used to pay the Reservation Fee. Alternatively, you may elect to have Dealer apply the funds to the purchase of a different Vehicle.
Please note that Dealer reserves the right to cancel your Reservation Fee (and corresponding Vehicle reservation) for any reason, including: (i) an inability to contact you; (ii) an inability to fulfill the requested Vehicle; (iii) your inability to complete the purchase of the Vehicle within a reasonable time; or (iv) any other reasonable occurrence beyond Dealer’s control.
In the event of that your Reservation Fee is cancelled by Dealer, your Reservation Fee will be refunded to you to the same credit card you used to make the Reservation Fee, and the Vehicle you selected will no longer be reserved. This refund will be your only remedy in connection with any cancellation of your Reservation Fee.
